SOOOOO liking this exhaust! Probably WAY too loud but DAMN if I don't love the look! Thanks for the link. I had seen this system before but was confusing it with Mas Engineering that makes fenders and such. Still don't see any pricing or ordering information on the website though.

Really digging your bike Shining!
good job Shining

Mine at 12k requires a valve check/adjustment. Probably individual dealer pricing.
Sorry for the absence, Its been a rough life. I got laid off back in 09 didn't find a job till end of 10. Still got the bike though! Moved to the Midwest from Arizona (major change!).

Now the new job takes up a lot of my time (I love it though!), but I have been lurking once and awhile. Good to see someone remembers me!

Hi there,

perhaps this is going to be a double post now as there has been a mysterious fail of my internet-connection while replying. If so, sorry for that, but I think my post could be very important for this bike!

concerning that red and white Scrammy for sale:
I looked at the bigger pic of it's rear end where the suspension and 'rear caliper out of harms way' are mentioned. Riding a Meriden Triumph since 1981 with about 55.000 miles on the clock I have to admit, that I have no experience with the new Bonnies and Scrammies. But am I allowed to point out, that the rear brake line seems to be very short. When the swinging arm moves to it's upper stop, it might be possible to tear the line apart. Looking at the pic it seems to cross the frame under the swinging arm. The reserve in it's length might be very low. Might be, not must be. Alway's hard to tell something like this from a picture.
That's no big point when selling/buying the bike, could be changed without much effort. But I'd take a very close look at it!!!
Kind regards and good luck for the seller and much fun to the buyer of the bike, Bambi

Just joined the scrambler world. Saw an ad on Craigslist for a 2006 scrambler with 2000 miles on it. Called the number and it was the local VW dealer. I offered them $3500 out the door and they took it. Probably has a $1000 worth of accessories.

Oustanding deal! I had an '06 for a couple of years and they are great bikes. Enjoy.

Has anyone information and/or experience with tankbags for the Scram? I know Bagster sells these but are there also other brands?
My scram is the black mat colour;so a magnetic tank bag is not an option!

While I don't know if is in harms way, it is certainly routed different than mine is. Mine has the brake line retainer on the top side and is not stretched as much as that Scramblers appears to be...
Routing could be better.

The factory tankbag works well. Made for the shape of the tank. It expands also.
The nature of a tank bag I feel will cause wear on any tank over time.

I've got another question for the more experience scrambler guys. Any and all thoughts are very much appreciated. I just installed a set of free flowing pipes and removed the AI system. I have not yet had the bike rejetted (apointment is this week). I have not ridden the bike because I suspect the mixture is lean and I don't want to cause any damage. However, I have started the bike and let it idle for a minute, to hear how the pipes sound. I notice what appears to be too much smoke coming out of the exhaust. Also, once I shut it down, the pipes will keep releasing an obvious amount of smoke for a few seconds. Is this because the AI has been removed? Any thoughts?

Gracias!
